What goes uphill faster than it goes downhill?

well, i dont think the balloon could technically be considered as climbing or descending a hill, as it would just be rising in the air...

Very nice, I was thinking of electrons and atoms for the answer but got it wrong . However, great teaser!

Any four legged animal also goes uphill faster than it goes down hill.

Out of curiosity, how does a four-legged animal travel faster up- than down-hill?

This was a good teaser. As soon as I read the answer I was like "hello, self, are you really that dense?" Anyway, I liked it very much!
